of the deficit problem unless we raise taxes across the board. to go back to what bill clinton had. >> now, some liberals pushed the president to invoke the 14th amendment claiming that gives him the executive power to raise the debt limit himself, but jay said today the white house studied that proposition and decided the president does not have that executive power meaning we headed for another show down with congress over raising the debt ceiling. lou: the fiscal cliff and now a new ultimatum on the national debt ceiling. you suppose this is the last condition? >> it's going to be a wild couple of months, maybe everybody thought with the election over, there was going to be peace and figure all of this out, but i think we're just at the beginning of a long protractive battle, lou. lou: more on the stalemate of the fiscal cliff, the impasse, and tell us what you think about the so-called negotiations. vote in tonight's online poll. do you agree president obama's ultimatum on higher taxes are actually the cause? make him responsible for driving us off the fiscal cliff? go to our to be page at f
can tell you, it's not a hard ask, it's a partnership. and actually, as much as bill clinton and newt gingrich loatheds each other at times, they worked together to deal with -- >> on impeachment. >> to deal with republicans like myself on balancing the budget for the first time in a generation, balancing it four years for the first time since the 1920s, paying down the national debt. and you know what? newt gingrich always had to fight us on his right flank, and he and bill clinton sat in the white house and strategized. >> i have a question. >> republican votes for that first clinton budget that set them on the path. >> joe, i've got -- >> hold on. come on, richard. you must have been sleeping or somewhere in britain in '95, '96, '97, '98 and '99 when we balanced the budget for the first time in a generation. >> joe, i have a question for you. let's say boehner goes back to his caucus and says, you know what? from the president's first proposal, i was able to shave off $600 billion in tax hikes. >> right. >> so i saved that. >> by the way, we're going to end up at, like, 1.2, aren't
we could do is go over the fiscal cliff. we have the same tax rates that we have when bill clinton was president. significant cuts in defense and also significant human services can you tell us. >> katie, let me ask you, before you respond to what governor dean is saying. there is logic to what howard dean is saying. i don't happen to agree with it. but i know where he's coming from. katie, let me ask you this -- katie can't hear me. we'll wait for her to get back hooked in. howard, what about the notion that i'm posing tonight -- i've said this a few times -- republicans better be careful. they're not going down your road and the democrats aren't going down your road. you have middle class tax cuts for the democrats and it sometimes sounds to me as an old reagan conservative that the republicans better watch themselves because sometimes it sounds like they are kind of defending rich people. that's their whole mantra, just defending rich people. and i think that's not where they should be. >> i would agree. if i were politically advising the republicans, which i'm certainly not, i
who get the gifts that i get, the goldwater sticker and the bill clinton cork screw. >> who better to pop your cork. >> where does it come out of no it says warning it could create penal envy. cork screw bill. the new action hero for wine drinkers. >> the cork screw comes out of that area on him. >> stephanie: he said happy birthday. my birthday is in september. he's a little behind on the birthday wish. thank you. fabulous gift. this is bruce in maine with the goldwater miller sticker found in an antique store. i don't think it's that old but who would reproduce it. someone who wants me and nancy goldwater to run again. it's a new gold water and miller sticker. i'll give that to my mom for her 90s birthday, which is coming up. she'll enjoy that so much particularly the bill corkscrew. stan you're on "the stephanie miller show." hi stan. >> caller: hi, how is it going. >> stephanie: good, go ahead. >> caller: i own a 400-square-foot real restaurant. the thing that confuses me when representative boner yesterday way sassing how these tax increases is going to going to effect us. tha
going on between bill clinton and then speaker newt gingrich and the government did shut down. the president emerged on both occasions, two shutdowns, in a stronger political position because the american public blamed the conservatives, the republicans in congress more than they blamed the white house. so that is the one area where the white house is saying, look, they have some leverage on that. >> let me ask you this, wolf. you have been at this game a long time. this intractability sounds and feel it's like nothing we have ever seen before. do you have any sort of, i don't know, light on the horizon that you see? are we going to be this polarized and literally make the country pay for what's now become just sheer ugly politics? >> my own gut tells me that between now and the end of the year they will reach a deal. and it will be a compromise and both sides won't be thrilled by it, but it will be better than the alternative. and it will probably go down to the last minute. it usually does. maybe ruin some christmas vacations and stuff like that, but the stakes really are en
so she encouraged bill clinton not to go to war. al lthe sudden, the affair popped up and he was impeached. nothing was done for 911 when they were here for five years. when bush stepped in, 911 happened. no one paid attention to that. hillary kept us from going to war which i think can close to 911. as soon as benghazi happened, she called up and decided not to be in her position anymore before the intermission came out. i feel she sold out. i think she is very intelligent. people, wake-up. host: sean is a democrat from indianapolis. caller: hello. in my opinion, i believe hillary clinton would be a good choice in 2016. host: why? believe bill clinton was the best democratic president since john f. kennedy. host: again, why? caller: why? people's rights. host: red in west virginia, republican line. hi, red. how're you doing? caller: i am doing all right. host: what do you think about hillary clinton in 2016? caller: i think c-span is starting to campaign for her already. we haven't seen what the president we have now is going to do for the next four years. i think it is prem
said he would not be held responsible for the horrible consequences of bill clinton raising taxes on the rich until it worked and then he took credit for it. >> quite frankly. >> he is a silly little man. >> stephanie: shree you are on the "stephanie miller show." >> caller: hi steph. i love your show. i just want to make two points. first these people in the media talk about these [ inaudible ] pollster generated terms like job creators. let's not use that let's call them the ultra wealthy or something else -- >> stephanie: the cash horders. >> caller: yes. exactly. because nobody comes out there, and says all right. let's create some jobs today. the only people who can create jobs is actually the government entity, and these guys are just -- job creation is just an outcome of -- >> stephanie: did you say the only people that can create jobs is the government? >> the only entity who actually has the power to create jobs is the government. >> stephanie: i think companies do, but they are sitting on literally historically record profits and they are not hiring.
of american progress. former chief of staff of bill clinton. john has to leave us early. we have the director of the urban institute's tax policy center. we'll see if you two disagree on anything. we have will marshal from the progressive policy institute. we have senator bob packwood from oregon, former chairman of the senate finance committee, part of the 1986 negotiations. and the other folks here have been part of the conversation. my only message to the new arrivals, please jump in whenever you see fit. we have an hour to an hour and a half. if you hear something you want to weigh in on, don't wait for me. we're talking now about the other very small issue in this issue and that is tax policy and how best to put the nation on a sustainable fiscal path. the question of revenue, how much, where to get it, the options on the table and would like your thoughts. as you heard from chairman bachus. they need ideas to bridge this gap because we appear to be at a stale mate. i turn it over to john to get your thoughts knowing he has to leave and the center for american progress has come out with
illness. it's an example of how you can form a friendship at these meetings. bill clinton had beat the sitting president, george herber walker bush, and they met similar to the way romney and obama are now, and now clinton and 41 are dear, close friends and have done many constructive things together around the world. i think, by and large, these meetings, the luncheon today, will be about optics. it's the photo ops. it's a chance to say america is united. there may be an opportunity here for mitt romney to come out and talk about the fiscal cliff or saying we must avoid falling off it towards something that could be helpful to the white house in the end. i remember back in 2008 it was john mccain that met with president obama. they met in his office in chicago. not at the white house. it seemed like that was the beginning, potentially of two leaders really working together. we have since seen that deteriorate. >> we can't judge personal kem tri. i think barack obama has more at stake in this lunch in the end than mitt romney. if obama can get romney to say something positive about

[ laughter ] >> caller: exactly. if he think the average career only lasts 25 years has he signed up all of those people to the pledge 20 years ago shouldn't we be getting ready to throw him a retirement party pretty soon? >> stephanie: yeah, one would think. a lot of people were saying it applied to the congress that they signed it for and that was 20 years ago. don in columbus. hi don welcome. >> caller: hi, steph, how are you? >> stephanie: good. go ahead. >> caller: i was curious. i watched the shows yesterday and it was noticeable that tim kind of explained himself to everybody including chris wa
is what has to happen, all right? the president needs to take a page out of president bill clinton -- >> he's in philadelphia with the middle class behind him and nodding and saying, i've got a pen, i've got a pen. i've still got a pen, i've still got a pen. >> president obama owes president clinton a great deal for helping him get elected. number one, we need a meaningful citizen education engagement effort with the white house in formada, next year to build the case for a grand bargain. the official version of what i did and what my colleagues did over the last several months and we need congressional hearings that will set the stage for tax reforms, social security reform and the president needs to negotiate privately and have discussions with congressional leaders of both parties privately. those three things can get us to the promt promise land. and without all three of those, we're in trouble. >> but, david, that is exactly what was supposed to happen between july of 2011 and today. and guess what? none of it has happened. none of it. we're having the same conversation. >> yo
it to passage, the bill would be send to the white house and then put into law. obama has been unequivocal over the fact that the top earners tax rate must return to the clinton era. he can introduce a tax plan that will accomplish all of his revenue goals. that's the rumbling that they are getting ready to cave and make it seem like they are not caving. the republicans are suddenly in control, blah, blah, blah blah blah. so i don't -- i'm getting confused on how the best way is for this to play out.
